Color Gamp

As soon as the loom was emptied it was warped again. This warp came prewound in a Laura Fry kit that I purchased at the Seattle Weaver's Guild sale, so no winding required, just warp and start weaving. Since the loom is like a magnet, calling me to sit and weave (even when I should be working on other things), it's hard not to sit and weave - just a few inches.... Before I knew it, I had used all the weft yarn that came in the kit. I tried out some 5/2 and 3/2 pearl cottons in black and cream on the remaining warp and decided I liked the more colorful weft. Maybe I can make a tote or something from the area woven with the pearl cotton - the colorful gamp that has matching warp and weft will be hemmed for a table runner (if I can stop weaving long enough to wash and hem it).

Great that you're loving your new loom so much!!! I wondered how you got a second project on there so quickly!

Have fun!

Well if you thought that was fast, I have also just finished weaving a shawl that I wound my own warp for.
